Monitoring your databases health
Auditing data can grow at a rapid rate, even if you are careful to record only what is absolutely necessary. Because OpenEdge databases and the disks they reside on do not have infinite resources, you must have a good monitor running that has an alerting feature. Should the database begin filling at an abnormal rate, this monitor must trigger an alarm so that the situation can be investigated and corrected.
The monitoring process also serves as a high-water mark to let you know that you must begin planning an off-line archival of the audit data to make room.
